. the framers were students of history, james madison. 150 years before they took a pen and wrote out this clause there was a fight with james i about what was called royal prerogative. very similar to what president obama is claiming, the right of the game to essentially stand above the law to reform the law to the kings views. i'm not saying that president obama is a monarch but that was the issue that gave the impetus to this clause, in my view. the language did not change very much. later, people like benjamin -- the dispensing power of the president. he wrote a very good paper about when the president can refuse to enforce laws. he basically said he could only be done -- they could only be done when there's intrusion upon executive power. by the way, that's was involved in the myers case we talked about, referred to earlier. or if it was clearly unconstitutional, and that second issue, established had to be very, very clear so the president does not exercise that authority. this is a i would respond. we don't have to hyperventilate to look any problem and take it is not about who

a tough volcker rule that i expect to be true to president obama's vision and the statutes intend. the rule now before regulators for a vote is a product of much intensive work and analysis and needless to say, years of effort. it prohibits risky proprietary trading while protecting economically essential activities like market making such as when a firm facilities selling bonds for a mutual fund. the rule prohibits risky trading that's like the london whale, and puts in place strong compliance requirements that require those in charge of financial institutions to make sure that the tone at the top sends the right signal to the whole firm. now, in order to make sure that taxpayers are truly protected, it is critical to have an effective resolution process so that individual firms did not jeopardize an entire financial system or leave taxpayers at risk. dodd-frank cribbage the use of taxpayer dollars to bail in any financial firms. in ending too big to fail requires that any future crises we can and will use the tools the law provides. the largest financial companies have already s
